Got some cool photos the other night from Ernie and the Berts‘ first official show at the 31st Street Pub. Bethany took all the ones of Ernie and the Berts, I took the ones of the Shutouts and the Undercover Saints.
To see the whole album, you have these options…
I had a good time taking the photos, hope you enjoy ‘em. It’s good to be out & about and watching vital punk bands still playing.
You should definitely check out the Shutouts and the Undercover Saints some time soon if you’re into Pittsburgh punk rock. I found some free music online too…
You can’t afford not to check ‘em out now. (Or would that be… You can’t afford to not check ‘em out now?)

Bethany & I went to the National Aviary on Sunday, & I had the opportunity to photograph some really beautiful colorful birds. We also walked through the park afterward, and found a squirrel who apparently had aspirations of a career in modeling.
You can check out all the photos at Photobucket as a grid or slide show, or you can see them all here:

If you live in the ‘Burgh, you know we got some serious storm winds & some damage on Friday afternoon. The storm hit one of my favorite places to take photos, Dormont Park. So, of course I got some pictures of some trees knocked over and a utility pole down.
To see the whole album, check it out in slideshow or grid form. We were without power for about a day and a half… and no damage was done to our place, so it could have been a lot worse. I just thought the twisted broken trees made for some good photo subjects.
I reported the downed utility pole to Duquesne Light on Saturday right after I saw it… went back to look around today, it was still down… no caution tape or anything up, so I called the Dormont police. Hopefully they send someone in to clean up, there’s usually a decent amount of people in the park, hope no one would come across the stuff & get hurt.
Also, in the same set of photos… nothing really to do with the storm, we hit up Chick-fil-A for breakfast & the use of a power outlet to charge our phones on Saturday morning as our power was out, I happened to have my camera in the car… I saw some kind of hawk or falcon on a light pole near the Chick-fil-A in South Hills. At first I thought it was an owl, upon a second glance I really wasn’t sure at all.
Anyone know what it is?

Bethany pointed this out to me yesterday while she was preparing a nice Valentine’s Day dinner. It prompted me to grab some more Snopocalypse photos, and upload the ones that have been in my camera since the big storm. I’m not sure if I captured it quite right, given my limited angle (out the kitchen window) & minimal photography skills. It’s a crazy ice formation that appears to have formed to the bricks of our neighbor’s house, then fallen forward to rest on another icicle… leaving a really interesting free-standing brick-pattern sculpture.
